How To Make Things Happen

How To Make Things Happen

To make something happen requires execution. Any idea is only as good as it can be executed.  Many of us come from the perspective of wanting something to happen, wanting to be successful and this shows up in our conversation. However, when we transition from wanting to expecting to be successful this shows up in our behaviour in our execution. You can judge a tree by the fruit that it bears. Have no doubt, execution is a skill that can be learned.

Essential traits that you need to know to master execution:

Vision is about having a compass about where you are today to success. It has been said that people who write down their goals are 9 times more likely to accomplish their goals than people who don’t. Get crystal clear on your vision. You can start big or you can start small, the key thing is to start. What is one thing that you’d like to accomplish right now? Write it down. Once you have your vision, you need to be emotionally connected to it and you need passion.

Passion is when you put more energy into something that is required to do it. It is more than just enthusiasm or excitement. It’s about putting your mind, body and soul into something to ensure its success. What is that one thing that you’d gladly suffer for in order to do what you’d love to do?


Action is doing something for a particular purpose. You have to be willing to take that first step and it doesn’t have to be right. What matters is that you're prepared to get started no matter what. Have you heard the saying “Feel the fear and do it anyway? “Ask yourself what is one action you’re prepared to take to accomplish your vision. Just a simple one and yes you can start small, write it down. Newsflash now that you’ve decided to take action something is going to go wrong and that’s why you need the fourth trait resilience.

Resilience the ability to bounce back from setbacks. To adapt and overcome whatever is thrown in your path. When you think about what it’s going to entail to achieve your vision and make it into a reality. Overcoming the fear, anxiety, rejection, you will begin to appreciate why resilience is a key component in your arsenal. Write down one obstacle standing in the way of your vision could be and when this happens to you, you become more resilient. And you’ll know that you are able to overcome that.

Relationships can be described as a connection between two or more people which brings them closer together and eventually results in a strong bond.  Nobody is successful alone. It’s important to build healthy, inspiring, supportive relationships. One of the most significant factors in any person’s life is the people. Therefor doing a relationship audit is very important.

What is a relationship audit? It’s a list of all the people you spend time with. In its simplest form, you put a plus against those who positively contribute to you and a minus against those who don’t. Going forward you spend more time with those who contribute to you and less with those who don’t. Over time you’ll be able to see the shift.
